Can I substitute margarine for butter in this recipe?

Chicken fracases
1 lb. chicken cutlets, pounded thin
Egg, beaten with salt, pepper & 1/4 c. milk
1 lemon, halved
Freshly chopped parsley
1 1/2 sticks butter

Dredge chicken in flour, then dip in egg mixture and again in flour. Put in refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour to set. Chicken will be sticky.
Melt 1 stick butter in large skillet. When it starts to bubble, squeeze 1/2 lemon into butter and quickly add cutlets. Sprinkle with parsley. Turn and brown other side. Remove to a warm platter. Melt other 1/2 stick butter with juice of the other half of lemon. Pour over the top of cutlets and serve immediately.

  • you can, but I wouldn't.
    Margarine is SOOOO bad for you!
    Besides butter tastes so much better!
    If I were to substitute I would use olive oil or coconut oil

  • Use butter if you can. It will be less likely to scorch in the pan and it will taste better. If you must use it, don't let the pan get too hot.
